Non Toxic Sunscreen

Not all sunscreens are created equal—some are sticky and greasy and others contain toxic ingredients that can damage your skin. So how do you embrace the sunshine while still taking great care of your skin? Meet Colorescience non-toxic sunscreen. Our skin-friendly sunscreens protect your skin from the from the sun without the toxic effects of other sunscreen products.



What are the harmful ingredients found in sunscreen?

Protecting your skin from UV rays is essential to your skin’s health. SPF products help combat signs of aging, sunspots, and skin cancer—but too many chemical sunscreens use filler ingredients that do more harm than good. Some ingredients can even cause bleaching, allergic reactions, and contribute to skin cancer. So what ingredients should you avoid in sunscreen products?

  • Oxybenzone
  • Parabens
  • PABA
  • Avobenzone
  • Octisalate
  • Octocrylene
  • Homosalate
  • Octinoxate

Non-comedogenic physical sunscreens are a safe alternative to protect the skin from UV, while also taking preventative skincare measures to reduce the likeliness of irritation. Colorescience suncare products also work as a safe sunscreen for babies since they’re free of toxic chemicals that can harm your little one’s sensitive complexion.


How does PABA affect the skin?

PABA, also known as Para-AminoBenoic Acid, is an antioxidant that is naturally produced by the body, but excessive doses of PABA can cause toxicity and liver damage. People who are sensitive to PABA may experience skin reactions, nausea, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and stupor. If you experience these symptoms when you apply sunscreen, wash it off and seek medical attention right away. Choose Colorescience for PABA-free non-toxic sunscreen to protect your skin and prevent toxicity.


Why is Oxybenzone bad for skin?

Oxybenzone is one of the most common chemicals found in sunscreen. This chemical forms colorless crystals that act as a filter to protect your skin from UV light. Although the purpose of Oxybenzone is to absorb UV rays, it can also be absorbed by the skin. Oxybenzone can disrupt the endocrine system and mimic hormones, causing endometriosis and reproductive harm. It can also contribute to infertility in men and early puberty in girls. Colorescience offers mineral sunblock without Oxybenzone as an alternative. Our powder sunscreen is made of natural minerals that brush on lightly and won’t seep into your skin. This creates a barrier that reflects the sun’s light to protect your skin without harming your body.
